  1. Item: Musical Fidelity A5CR power amplifier Location: Perth Price: $2200 inlcuding postage to mainland Australia Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD, direct bank deposit only Extra Info: I purchased this amplifier from LWA middle of last year to experience the big watts on offer but find I prefer the sound and tonality of valves in my setup. This amp is well reviewed and regarded and drives awkward speaker loads without breaking a sweat. I will pack in the non original double boxes and packing as sent to me from the original seller. A bonus is the size and weight to easily fit into normal stereo rack. Happy to demo at my home or can bring to local buyers to listen to in their system as it usually gives a more accurate idea of the sonic fit. Specifications: Output : Power 255 Watts per channel into 8 Ohms (24dBW), 416 Watts per channel into 4 Ohms Voltage, RMS : 45.2 Volts 20Hz to 20kHz Voltage, Peak-to-peak : 118.8 Volts Current peak-to-peak Damping factor : 200 Amps Output devices per channel : 8 Total harmonic distortion + noise: < 0.01% 20Hz to 20kHz Signal / noise ratio: < 109dB ‘A’-weighted Input sensitivity for 255 Watts into 8 Ohms Input impedance: 1.5V Channel separation: > 90dB typical Frequency response: 10Hz to 100kHz, +0, -1.5 dB Inputs: (A) 1 pair line level RCA connectors (B) 1 pair line level RCA connectors Outputs: 2 amplifier channels via 2 pairs per channel binding posts + 1 pair RCA loop output sockets Weight: 19.1kgs Dimensions: 440x 125 x 400mm Pictures:
  2. Buy with confidence. Dean's gear always absolutely top notch. I bought his PL pre and am drooling!!
  3. I was fortunate to listen to a pair of Peter's refurbed Gale 402. They sounded better than I remembered my Gale 401A. First class workmanship and sound. I'm so tempted.😂 GLWTS.
  4. My preference is silver. You can read the engraving. I'm sure it sounds awesome whatever the colour. At night it's black. Same old story - if I had the coin.
  5. Awesome Dac mate. Very musical with great detail. So tempting. Glwts
  6. Late input but just came across the post. I ran my Kappa 9's with a krell ksa100s amp for many many years. Only 100wpc but plenty of current supply. The only time it looked like running out of omph was when the speakers were set to extended mode. When switched to normal mode they sang. The music the combination made was like a match made in heaven. After selling both the speakers and amp in a downsizing exercise I'm still searching for that same scale of sound. The big current supply amps will do the job as less than 1 ohm impedance loads are hard work.
  7. Sold pending payment. Will update if things change.
  8. Thanks @deanB. Yes there's something very enjoyable about Adelaide speakers which allows many hours of good listening. They never become fatiguing. Somewhat regrettable sale but need to move on but I know where I can go to enjoy the sound (plus a couple beers) while at it😁😁.
  9. Passive only mate. I think the power figure indicates recommended amp power max as often shown on speakers alongside impedance loads.
  10. Yep. I'm amazed at great aussie craftsmen. Cabinet work I can barely see the joints and the sound that Edward creates is great bang for buck value.
  11. Item: Adelaide Ascension Summoner floorstanding speakers Model PRTL1093 Location: Perth Price: SOLD PENDING PAYMENT $800 price reduction to $700 for Perth pickup. Interstate parties to arrange own freight and costs. Item Condition: 9.5/10 because it's not brand new Reason for selling: Too many floorstanders. Need some more floor space. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, direct bank deposit, COD Only Extra Info: Edward's creations punch above their weight for the asking price. Those guys who have heard them have been surprised at their musicality with both solid state and tube amps. Very easy to drive at 92-93db with minimum impedance of 6.8 ohm (8 ohm average for these with Peerless woofer). Freq response 24-40,000Hz +/-2db. 1 pair multi way binding posts make for easy cable connection to suit personal preferences. I upgraded the 250mm woofer to Peerless with extra magnets installed per Edward's suggestion for improved bass performance and efficiency. SB Acoustic 135mm midrange with wonderful ribbon tweeter combine to make for very smooth musical experience for all tastes. The transmission line bass loaded cabinet provides a solid extended bass line which is especially tuneful. Those who are familiar with transmission line designs such as found on PMC, TDL, IMF will be familiar with the sound. The imaging extends well behind and to the sides of the speakers creating an impressive soundstage. I use with both valve and Solid state amps and the overall tone I would describe as slightly on the warm detailed side allowing for many hours of fatigue free listening. Timber veneer cabinets finished in light american oak with fabric clip on speaker covers. Can't find a mark on them. Have original boxes. Local buyers preferred as these may cost a bit to transport at 34Kg each. Packing carton dimensions 1270 x 480 x 380 for interested interstate parties to obtain freight prices. Actual speaker dimensions are 1120 x415 x 300. For further information please PM me. Thanks for looking. Pictures:
